The Journey now has a destination!!!

It’s official we are now missionaries with Africa Inland Mission (AIM).   We will be heading to northern Namibia,  January 2015.  About two years ago, Claudia and I started praying for clear direction over some areas in our lives. God led us to contact AIM. We went through the interview process, participated in candidate week and have accepted this assignment.  This is a faith journey.  We have a lot to do before we leave and trust that God will provide through the whole process.  You can follow our journey on this blog as we will post updates, needs, prayer letters and fun videos from time to time.  We have a passion to reach the unreached people by building relationships and learning their culture.  We are excited yet at the same time very aware that we are just the hands and feet that will be going.  Part of our journey is building a team to support us while we are in the field.  You can partner with us by faith to commit to pray and/or by faith supporting us financially.  If you would like to commit to pray, please email us directly at jchazel@aimint.net  If God leads you to support by giving, follow the link on the right side of this page.

A song that inspired me to take that first step and contact AIM was written by Britt Nicole. Below are a few lines from her song “Walk On The Water.”  May it encourage you to take that first step in whatever area of your life you need to have more faith.

When you take that first step into the unknown

You know that he won’t let you go

So what are you waiting for

What do you have to lose

Your insecurities

They try to hold to you

But you know you’re made for more

So don’t be afraid to move

Your faith is all it takes

And you can walk on the water too
